The new Apple iPod is here and as expected it is lighter, thinner and with a widescreen multitouch display of 2.5 inches with 432×240 pixels resolution. There are some new features added to jazz up the nano.

What Apple says – it’s the same Soul, just a new body. The size well, can be compared with a credit card, its 5.4 mm thin. The touch screen area has been increased for better viewability when watching videos, TV shows and video podcasts.

Add to it the two new features added to the Apple iPod are the built in FM radio. Now enjoy live music on the go with the FM radio. The radio feature also comes with live pause wherein you can ‘pause’ the radio for up to 15 minutes and just tap to continue from where you left or just fast forward for live broadcast. Another feature is the Bluetooth 4.0, you can get wireless with any Bluetooth enabled headphones, speakers and in-car BT enabled audio systems.

The earphones or what Apple calls the EarPods have also changed completely. They have been made to sound great and stay comfortably in place. It’s a completely new breakthrough design they termed it as the EarPods.

The Apple iPod is basically for hearing music but you can watch movies, photos and also works as a perfect workout partner. For Rs. 12,500 with 16GB memory does not seem a bad deal considering the amazing product quality.
